     Biographical/Historical note 
 John D. Whisman was inspirational force behind the creation of the Appalachian Regional Commission. He, along with Kentucky Governor Bert T. Combs, Maryland Governor J. Millard Tawes, and a few others were instrumental in establishing the federal-state agency in 1965. Whisman was born in Indiana in 1921, but was reared in eastern Kentucky, the homeland of his parents. He attended local schools in Indiana and Kentucky, graduating from Powell County (Kentucky) High School in 1940. He attended college, then served in the Army Air Corps during World War II. After his release from the Army, he received a degree in journalism from the University of Kentucky in 1950. For much of his career, Whisman was on a mission to eliminate poverty in Appalachia. He started principally with his work in Junior Chamber of Commerce. It was as president of the Kentucky Jaycees in the 1950s that he started forming the concepts that would be the structure for the ARC. He pursued his goal of implementing a comprehensive development process as executive director of the Eastern Kentucky Regional Planning Commission, as special assistant to two Kentucky governors, as staff chairman of the Conference of Appalachian Governors, as a member of President Kennedy's Area Redevelopment Task Force, as executive secretary of the President's Appalachian Regional Commission, and as the first appointed States' Regional Representative of the Appalachian Regional Commission. After leaving the ARC in 1976, Whisman continued his passion for planned development both as a consultant and as a civic leader. He died in 1995, in Frankfort, Kentucky, leaving a wife and two sons.

He joined the Lexington Jaycees while a student at the University of Kentucky. The Jaycees was seen as an organization for ambitious young men to be involved in the community, to learn and exercise leadership, and to make contact with established leaders in the community. Whisman used the Jaycees to develop and implement a program of comprehensive development for communities in Kentucky. The program became a pilot effort that was eventually used for regional development by state and federal governments. The records show that Whisman was involved in many major activities during his time with the Jaycees. He organized and coordinated a seat belt campaign nationwide, helped organize and direct Wendell H. Ford's campaign for the presidency of the national Jaycees, created a community development program in Kentucky, and directed the national version of Kentucky's community development program. While Ford was vice president of the national Junior Chamber of Commerce in 1955-1956, Whisman formulated and directed "Operation Lifebelt," a program that promoted the use of seat belts in automobiles. It was promoted at the community level throughout the United States, and legislatures were lobbied to enact laws requiring their use. During his last year of eligibility, Whisman served as president of the Kentucky Junior Chamber of Commerce. His primary initiative was to initiate a program by local chapters to take an inventory of community resources, which would then lead to ideas for development projects. Whisman was also active in organizing and directing Ford's campaign for the national presidency of the Junior Chamber of Commerce. After his year as president of the Kentucky Jaycees, Whisman served as chairman of Program Number One at the national level. This was the national version of the community development program he had prepared as president. The sub-series in this series are Lexington, Kentucky, Whisman's presidency, United States, National Chair, Jaycee Community Development (1957-1958), Jaycee International, and Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. The Lexington through United States sub-series are generally divided into Publications, Organization, and Community Outreach, and then chronologically. The other sub-series are chronologically organized.
